Welcome to SOLIDWORKS Electrical Help

SOLIDWORKS Electrical is an open, intuitive and complete software package for preparing electrical schematics. It is composed of two packages: SOLIDWORKS Electrical Schematic (for detailed schematic design, wiring line diagrams, 2D cabinet layouts, and complete management of terminals and reports) and SOLIDWORKS Electrical 3D (for 3D plant layout and routing of wires, cables, and harnesses), both of which can be used individually. The electrical project data is stored in an (SQL Server) database and updated in real-time by the Collaborative Server. This allows multiple users to work on the same electrical project.


This help program guides you through the process of creating schematics and managing your software from installation, through document set up, to process maintenance.
